12) “New Frontier Party Is the Party of the SGI” “Problems Within the Komeito and the Soka Gakkai”
More politics. The latter story was written by a Kunio Naito, who was a founder of the now-defunct “April Alliance.” This was a group of politicians, journalists and religious leaders (a couple of Nichiren Shoshu priests attended their inaugural meeting) whose stated purpose was to crush the Soka Gakkai. In furtherance of that aim, they were responsible for many of the stories trying to link the SGI to the Aum sect and its gassing of the Tokyo subway. In other words, it was a group that took advantage of the tragedy to further its political agenda.
“The LDP’s strategy apparently influenced the formation on May 12 of Shigatsu Kai, which, oddly enough, translates to April Meeting. The organization is made up of a diverse mix of religious groups, scholars and others whose only common denominator appeared to be the desire to form an anti-Soka Gakkai front.”That’s all we need to know about Mr. Naito and his “reporting”.
